Jeff,

In response to an open request to our membership, seven companies 
stepped forward to Sponsor this activity in 2013.  They are Apple, 
Disney, Facebook, Intel, Microsoft, Mozilla, and Yahoo! (in alphabetical 
order).  W3C appreciates the generosity of these companies.  As we have 
explained in our open request to our membership, this helps defray the 
personnel, travel, and other expenses associated with supporting this 
Working Group.
